While I assure you I've seldom felt "stupid" about anything, I certainly
believe that, if I had the opportunity to make the sacrifices in order to
learn another profession, I would. There are a number of endeavors that
would offer the intellectual challenge I require and provide more financial
reward without the business and professional liability risks structural
engineering presents.

I have difficulty understanding any positive effects your caustic remarks
may create. You would make better use of this cyberspace to offer a
different (i.e., your own) perspective rather than attack my opinion.
